The Lindenwood University School of Business and Entrepreneurship will host a Sport Management Career Symposium on Thursday, Sept. 29, in Harmon Hall’s Dunseth Auditorium on the St. Charles campus. The event will provide networking and professional development opportunities to students wishing to pursue careers in the sport industry.
The event’s morning session, from 8:30 to 11 a.m., will include a seminar, presented by the Lindenwood Career Development Office and TeamWork Online, that will cover resume building, interviewing, and self-promotion skills.
The symposium’s afternoon session, from noon to 4 p.m., will feature panel discussions, networking opportunities, and internship placement exploration. Representatives from various organizations will be present, including the St. Louis Blues, St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Rams, St. Louis Sports Commission, YMCA of Greater St. Louis, Rivers City Rascals, and more.
“Students will have face-to-face contact time with working professionals in the dynamic and exciting field of sport management,” said Molly Hudgins, department chair of Lindenwood’s sport management program. “They will be gathering insights and information directly from people they see and read about in sports and business media every day.”
There is no cost to attend the event, but seating is limited. For more information, contact Hudgins at 636-949-4192 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
